By many expert opinions, it can officially be said that the business world has moved beyond the ‘consumer microscope’  and is now ‘under fire’ from an ever expanding level of eco awareness among a more informed general public.  The speed and availability of today’s information shines a bright light on the missteps of business to a much larger watchful eye.  The days of “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” are over.  Thus, the need for responsive business sustainability action is here.
 
As the general consumer increasingly scrutinizes business sustainability actions in response to social injustice and environmental responsibility, the desire for transparency is no longer the primary focus.  Growing expectations require not just corrective action but sustainable business processes to ensure these same missteps are not repeated.  Beyond acknowledgement, beyond reactive correction, the world now calls for sustainable business action.
 
To aide in this exploration, Corporate Compliance Insights offers a variety of posts which document major corporation missteps and the lessons to be learned from their corrective measures.  In particular, What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You, explores the traditional mentality surrounding internal business process surveillance and monitoring.  Click here to read more about corrective sustainability action
